Description of problem:
In a system having 16 disks, an exception aborts the RHEL-7.2 automatic installation when trying to install on the 16th disk i.e sdp.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup a server with 16 disks in UEFI mode.
2. Start automatic installation using a kickstart which tries to partition/install on sdp
3. Exception is encountered.
Automatic Installation aborts.
Automatic Installation should be successful.
* This is mainly because the control-flow is entering into a wrong code-segment due to an overly inclusive regex controlling the control-flow entry.
It is fixed in blivet with the following patch:
Attaching the logs for reference.

Kickstart used for installation
I have reproduced it on RHEL-7.2RC on KVM VM with UEFI firmware(ovmf_x64/OVMF_CODE-pure-efi.fd) with 16 disks, where 15 have 100M and 16th(vdp) have 6G. Modify ks.cfg to match disk names and installation size.
Can still observe the issue with python-blivet-0.61.15.53-1.el7 present in RHEL-7.3-Alpha-1.
Please incorporate the patch mentioned in #Description.
Fix verified on snapshot 3 (RHEL-7.3-20160908.3).
Snapshot-2 contains python-blivet-0.61.15.55-1.el7
We shall verify once the Snapshot-3 builds are available to us.
